Arindam Banerjee: Designing a more efficient tidal turbine

Imagine a single tidal turbine capable of powering a community of 50 to 70 homes all year long.

That’s the potential of turbines being developed by Verdant Power, which builds marine energy systems that harness power generated from currents. Turbines whose design is currently being refined by researchers at Lehigh University’s P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science.

Paper by ISE faculty wins Optimization Letters Best Paper Award for 2018

A paper written by ISE Associate Professors Frank E. Curtis and Daniel P. Robinson, along with Zachary Lubberts of Johns Hopkins University, has been named the winner of the 2018 Optimization Letters (OPTL) Best Paper Award for their work entitled “Concise complexity analyses for trust region methods.” Optimization Letters is a journal that covers all aspects of optimization, including theory, algorithms, computational studies, and applications.

Finally, the answer to a ‘burning’ 40-year-old question

We’ve known for decades that catalysts speed up the reaction that reduces harmful industrial emissions. And now, we know exactly how they do it.

A recent paper by Israel Wachs, the G. Whitney Snyder Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, describes the mechanism, and was the inside back cover story of the September 2, 2019, issue of Angewandte Chemie, a journal of the German Chemical Society.
